St. Catherine Academy eighth grade visited the Abbey of Gethsemani to help rake leaves and pick up trash on the roads. Jeannie Watkins and Frank Thompson, school parents, organized the visit and Frank Hall drove the students in the New Haven Trolley. Students and volunteers were greeted by Brother Conrad. After students finished helping around the grounds, they toured the church and Brother Conrad told them about the monks’ way of life.
